Brain Dead (2007)
Plot: In this low-budget horror flick from director Kevin Tenney, a sleepy fishing port town is consumed with terror when a small crater crash-lands nearby and releases a slimy parasitic agent that transforms the residents into brain-eating zombies. Cornered in an abandoned fishing lodge, six strangers are forced to band together to stave off the blood-sucking monsters clawing the walls outside.
My Review: The movie starts off with some guy starting to tell his story to a camera. It then switches to the credits and some stars and space…then onto some guys fishing where one gets hit by stuff from space, and he turns into a zombie and attacks the other man.
From there, there are a bunch of different mini stories of different people in different areas. A couple girls out in the woods who end up swimming and getting lost, two criminals who escape from being transported, a minister and a ditzy girl he has the hots for…and the zombie who is out creating other zombies that look more like demons. Anyhow, they all end up together in this house/cabin.
The movie had a made for TV feel to it. The music, acting, etc. But obviously it wasn’t. To be honest, when I was ½ through the movie I just lost all interest in the film and turned it off…a lot of people compare this movie to Night of the Demons because it has the same director, but I think this movie was utter crap. The ONLY thing it had going for it was the gore, and if your into T&A it had a good mount of that. Thank god I only streamed it via Netflix.
Gore/FX: The makeup effects of the zombies is pretty bad. They look like some of the shittiest zombies I’ve seen. The “cartoonish” space opening looks awful..as do some of the other graphics. But the gore looks pretty decent.
Sexual Content: Some big tits in the beginning and then two chicks later on who go skinny dipping and you see full fontal again with huge boobs. With the bad acting and the nudity I was beginning to wonder if I was watching a porno. Little while later another chick takes a shower and again we see full frontal.
Acting: Pretty bad. Bottom of the barrel. Not as bad as some shit I’ve seen, but this is BAD, almost like bad porno acting. So BEWARE!
Overall: I shut it off halfway through. I don’t like to review movies if I haven’t seen the whole thing. But I thought this was really bad and a complete waste of my time. It tried to combine horror and comedy and totally failed. I wouldn’t recommend it unless your into the gore and T&A sort of film with poor acting…all combined its not worth 2 stars…
